Dec 12 lecture on paleoanthropology in W. Kenya

AEGIS Interdisciplinary Lecture Series
December 12, 2016 | 3:30 - 5 p.m. | Anderson Hall Room 230

Please join us for the lecture "From stamp collecting to science: paleoanthropology in Western Kenya's early Miocene". Dr. McNulty (U of MN - Anthropology Department) will review a decade of research on the early evolutionary diversification of fossil apes, focusing on several localities in Western Kenya. Despite more than a century of work in this area, there is surprisingly little understood about East Africa's early Miocene fossil localities. With dozens of scientists from a variety of disciplines, his research team is starting to construct a robust model of the geochronology and paleoecology of this important period in our species' evolutionary history.
